Asian Studies Group is pleased to introduce the first exhibition that will take place at the ASG's new cultural lab in Milan city centre. From 23/01/2009 to 14/03/2009 The photo exhibition titled "Tokyo Riders, living in megalopolis - the perception of a new aesthetic" will include 20 original releases of Laura Liverani professional photographer has joined several artistic experieces in Eastern Asia, in particular in China, Hong Kong, and Japan.

The concept of the show is strictly related to the Association's project: the promotion and introduction of contemporary social scene on eastern asia countries, focusing the attention on those daily aspects that entirely realize a new and concrete aesthetic dimension. That seems more true and interesting if we consider the cultural and aesthetic image of Japan as commonly is thought of from an international point of view. We're used to seeing picture of traditional Japan, or to representing japanese sense of beauty as geisha or misterious women while they're deep in a tea cerimony or ikebana. In a different way, we'd want to take Tokyo as symbol of the cultural and social change still in progress in Japan and as clear revenge of the aestehetic need to evolve in a more concrete dimension. The comprehension of real contemporary life is essential to partecipate in a more conscious way to the social and cultural dimension of the biggest megalopolis in the world.
